ScootPad Learning

We have been exploring all the wonderful resources there is to Un-School with and I must say its been a pretty good adventure. We have been using one site for a while that's been working really well but, with that I have let the kids get onto ScootPad. So far Ellie is loving it and Ju not so much . The program is laid out well and very easy to navigate. Once you sign in for the first time your child will do a placement  test both of the kids had 40 questions. After, your done with the placement test they will place you in a grade and generate test and practice lessons .I will use this next two weeks and see if its ago or not .So far looks like its a go for Bumba and a pass for Ju.

Happy 1st Grader and Kindergartner



The kids are soaring ! They are doing very well in their lessons I'm very surprised a lot of times Ju ask me to do a lesson since we UnSchool not all lessons is at a set time which for us works so well. They are both doing well in Math and Reading which I couldn't be anymore happier .

Update

I now post the kids classes or lessons on Haiku which I got to say I love it the format is so easy and even have a tutorial  area also. I can post homework and show both of their attendance in class which is a plus. Right now we are starting a baking class which other can come along with us on our journey as they learn.
Here's more information on it ---->http://www.haikulearning.com/?__utma=1.1887090380.1395976966.1396023846.1396057301.4&__utmb=1.2.10.1396057301&__utmc=1&__utmx=-&__utmz=1.1395976966.1.1.utmcsr=myhaikuclass.com|utmccn=(referral)|utmcmd=referral|utmcct=/&__utmv=-&__utmk=266212111

No Heat Curls


Used Bee Mine Luscious and detangler/leave in and sealed with Blue Magic Castor Oil






This style was pretty easy all I did was parted the sections and made three knots going down the hair .When I was done I sprayed it with plain water and put on a silk cap I took it down about 4 hours later .These curls lasted pretty long I was shocked because usually any curl on her quickly goes.

Pizza !!!

Looks yummy right I know :) Many have asked me what do I use for our pizza crust because we eat al lot of it . Its so simple and I promise you will enjoy it.. I must say it can be as thick as you want and as thin I've done both. The recipe is a tea biscuit recipe but once you roll and stretch it becomes one good pizza dough. 
Here all the deliciousness :

Pizza Dough 
2 cup self rising flour 
1 cup milk
2 teaspoons baking powder 
1/4 room temp. butter 
Garlic seasoning 
Oregano seasoning 

Mix flour,powder,and seasonings in one bowl and butter with milk in another. 
Pour wet ingredients into dry will be sticky but just add a little more flour when it no longer sticks to much on the sides lay some parchment paper down flour your hands well and roll the dough out .I usually kneed the dough for about 2-4 min. and that's pretty good. Flatten out the dough with palm or rolling pin I find that for thicker dough using your palm works best for thinner the rolling pin wins. Add your sauce and top with what ever toppings you desire.(you can add 1 teaspoon of salt and 3 tablespoons of sugar if you like )
ENJOY!

Heart Hair Style

This was highly requested ..Ellie enjoyed it and it was very simple I must say.. I followed this tutorial ................>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UJdljXI9gXc. We will be doing this again soon its very very cute.

Ellie is on a roll..

Ellie officially is in week 1 of homeschooling which has really been a breeze. I'm finding out that with her she less hands on than Ju which means she's probably going to require more paper work and visuals which is completely fine to me we are diving deep in ABC Mouse for the year following along with Reading Eggs being the top structure points. Although we will utilize many other resources these will be the two big ones.
This is Ellie right after talking about sunshine. She has taking a big liking into blues and dressing herself so I try to let her express herself as much as she needs too..
Here's Ju doing some homework he loves the coloring parts !
